    Leaked: Are You The Next Mazda3?

    Last month, we published a story on what was to be expected from next-generation Mazda3. Today, Auto Express got their hands on what is purported to be the new Mazda3.

    "Print-outs of these pictures were delivered to the Auto Express office in an unmarked envelope, and we’ve scanned them so you can take a look," Auto Express reports.

    The renderings show the 3 wearing the Kodo design language with shield-like front grille, chrome-trim that runs around the perimeter of the grille and into the headlights, embellished wheel-wells, and a up-swept line.

    When Auto Express asked Mazda about these pictures, Mazda responded that these renderings "are to show how the Kodo design language translates to new models, rather than a real car."

    Not a Fan. The nose has a heavy overhang with no butt on the car. The style actually reminds me of the Infinity FX45. Different but blah. The wheels look undersized in comparison to the rest of the auto.

    Side view truly reminds me of a 70's futuristic station wagon.

    Still has that big ass mouth that I hate about all Mazda's and that Ford has copied on their new Focus.

    The rear looks like a frowny face.

    The C pillars seem to have Huge Blind spots, though it seems more and more that people do not care about the blind spots.

    too nose heavy but it's a nice change. problem is if the 3 gets too big, the 6 will be considered too much more...sort of like it is now.

    the hatch here reminds of a cross between a BMW hatch and a mazda
